Army is worried too many white men lead combat units

 Gen. Ray Odierno, Commanding General, Multi-National Forces-Iraq, and U.S. Army Lt. Col. Joseph McGee, Commander of 2-327 Infantry Battalion, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division, walk through the streets of Samarra to visit the locals, on Oct. 29, 2008.

 The Army reports that only 10 percent of its active-duty officers are black

and? 

U.S. Army sociologists are worried that a lack of black officers leading its combat troops will have detrimental effect on minorities and lead to fewer black officers in top leadership posts.

“The issue exists. The leadership is aware of it,” Brig. Gen. Ronald Lewis toldUSA Today on Thursday. “The leadership does have an action plan in place. And it’s complicated.”

    1. It has already taken its toll. I had a friend who retired from the Pentagon and the stories he told are ridiculous. His father was a general officer in WWII also.

  2. Blacks are 12% of the population, so sounds like this is about right. However, 18% are in the military. None of this matters unless duly qualified people have been passed over because of their race... which these days hits mainly white men - they're the ones with the real beef, methinks.
    Here are some interesting stats:

  3. So the military exists now to give minorities self esteem?

  4. They're worried that there won't be enough black officers to help Obama pull off the Coup.

  5. I should have stated my comment differently. It sounds like I don't think the black officers are patriotic. What I meant was they want to get rid of enough patriotic officers to make room for officers that will toe the Obama line, coup or whatever and they are going to use the guise of racial diversity and fairness to justify it.

    2. No truer words have been said...exactly.
      When we heard all the hype about Obama building a Citizen military, I said then it wasn't going to happen, in that he didn't have to build anything, all he had to do was dismantle what was already in place, and replace it with his own personnel, to do that, fire the existing Patriots with Obama loyalist, wouldn't cost a dime and it could be done in a matter of a few years...

      500 officers, as well as non essential personnel and enlisted are scheduled to be fired as we speak, its estimated that Obama has already purged us of 167 senior officer to date...Kill the moral, get rid of the Christian faith and patriotic of our soldiers, and who do you have left enlisting....Obama supporters of course?

      I was at Camp David when Clinton was elected and had worked there under both Reagan terms...Marines were telling me then that they had expected to make careers of the Marine Corps, but had decided not to reenlist because they could not serve under Bill...

      There in a nut shell is our current situation, and its set a dangerous precedence for America's Citizenry as well, for we now have a growing Military that will Kill American Citizens Without Thinking Twice About it...

      I told my daughter 2 years ago, that our military was being assembled by Obama's handlers to resemble the old Roman legions, and we've well documented knowledge of how easily they turned on and killed their own countryman, and, who also enlisted outside foreigners to do so, they had basically specialized kill units that were specifically created to take care of the Roman citizens!

      And I was told by friends that was ridiculous, that our Military would never turn on us...`Key word there was, Our Military, is no longer Our Military!
